Multi-Version Compiler Support

The following topic applies to Eclipse* for C/C++.
You can select different versions of the Intel® C++ Compiler for compiling projects with the Eclipse* Integrated Development Environment (IDE). For a list of the currently supported compiler versions by platform, refer to the Intel® C++ Compiler Release Notes.
If multiple versions of Intel® C++ Compiler are installed on the system, Eclipse* uses the latest version by default. To select the version of Intel® C++ Compiler to build your project:
  1. Right click the project and open
  2. In the properties dialog box, select
    C/C++ Build
  3. Select the
    Intel® C++ Compiler
  4. Select the row with the desired compiler version.
  5. Click
    Use Selected
    . Alternatively, click
    Use Latest
    to select the latest version of compiler.
  6. Click
The corresponding compiler environment is configured automatically for your project.
Tool Chain Editor
to select tools to be used within the toolchain, or set distinct project properties, like compiler options to be used with different versions of the Intel® C++ Compiler.
For any project, you can set the compiler environment by specifying it within Eclipse*; this overrides any other environment specifications for the compiler.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microproce
